About The Wine

There can be no doubt that Ricky Evans is a star on the rise. His boutique label Two Tonne Tasmania is a name to watch on the Apple Isle.

The EST Pinot Noir comes from a small, mature vineyard on the North Eastern coastline of Tasmania. Views of the sea can be taken in from the vineyard, a marginal site with a unique climate for producing finely detailed Pinot Noir.

The small inclusion of whole bunch lending structure and architecture to this wonderfully pure feeling wine. It's a treat to drink and only made in limited quantities. Ricky's wines are never available for long so if you want to see what he's up to, buy now or forever hold your peace.

About Two Tonne Tasmania

Two Tonne Tasmania is the brainchild of Ricky Evens. With the slogan ‘small parcels, big love’, Ricky’s approach is all about growing pristine, healthy fruit, harvesting at the right time, and then having to do as little as possible in the winery thereafter.

Since his serendipitous entry into the much sort after sub-region of the Tamar Valley in 2013, his first few releases have made quite a few waves. Pinot Noir is Ricky’s game, and he plays hard-ball. And his Rieslings and Chardonnays are excellent regional examples which showcase the purity and elegance of modern Tasmanian wine.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Little plusher in style than the TMV. Smells of cherry elixir, pepper, seaweed, some hints of game. It's soft and silky in the mouth. All the fruit tucked in nicely with powdery tannins that are trimmed with a savoury edge. So bright. So rad. And a set up from the 2016, to be sure. Phwoa... - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

The EST17 Pinot Noir is sourced from one of the most coastal and northern vineyards in Tasmania.  

Grown just north of Bicheno, a mature vineyard that lies within view of the ocean to the north and east.  This highly maritime climate results in an extremely long and mild growing season, with a smaller than average diurnal range. 

The soft and velvety fruit profile of this vineyard is on feature in this wine, yet it still received a small amount of whole bunch inclusion in the ferment to aid structure and balance.

This wine received no finings, minimal sulphur dioxide, and bottled unfiltered.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 13.0%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2026
Bottle Size : 750ml
